What we learnt: Raiders v Cowboys

Raiders demolished at home.

1. Negatives!!

When the biggest talking point from the match is the temperature, you know it's a real bludger. A game that we would've expected to be deciding Top 4 spots is more likely to be deciding if these teams still have a season ahead of them.

2. Rubbish Raiders

Already going into this game (& season) without a single half in the side, they've had to front up against the Cowboys without their spiritual leader Josh Hodgson, leaving the Raiders with less creative skills than a Rugby League Game Developer. Only a matter of time before Ricky's coaching ability comes under scrutiny in the Rugby League community.

3. No JT, No Problem

2 matches since JT declared his season was officially over and 2 wins to the Cowboys. Michael Morgan remains star of the show while leading around a new halves partner in Te Maire Martin*

*We still aren't sure if TMM has signed a contract to play in NQ or if he's on some kind of Wife Swap TV show.

4. Michael Fantasy Gun Morgan

Need a discount half for the run home? Need to make up some points in the back half of the season? Michael Morgan could be your guy! Averaging a very handsome 55 in games without JT this year, it could be worth a roll of the dice.

5. The curse of JT.

First Jonathan Thurston goes down in origin. Second James Tedesco misses back to back matches and in doubt for origin. And to complete the holy trinity, the highest averaging player in fantasy Jason Taumalolo has a stinker with 37 points although a longer break than usual too. Should we panic?

The Renegades Writers combine passion for the game, with a lack of editorial oversight. When they aren't next to the water cooler bitching about that try assist the stats guys missed, they are churning out sports articles that have been widely touted as "readable".
